Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We are located about 30 miles north of Atlanta, Georgia. Most of our adoptions are in this area, but we do not rule out good homes because of distance. We do not ship animals, but if you are willing to drive to the Atlanta area, we can meet you outside the city limits to save you travel time.

About Our Rescue Group:

This group was started because I moved next door to a State park (Red Top Mountain State Park) and animals are frequently abandoned there, particularly cats and kittens. Caring people find them at camp sites or summer home communities etc. and need a way to find homes for them. We have had a web site on Petfinder for many years and now have joined Adopt A Pet also.

Come Meet our Pets:

All our pets are in foster care. We do NOT have a shelter, and we do not take animals out to adoption events unless we are fostering for one of the local Humane Societies. We respond to online inquiries by email, arrange a telephone interview if the person is interested, once they are pre-approved to adopt, we will bring the animals to their house for a "meet & greet."

Our Adoption Process:

Adoption fees vary depending on amount of medical work done, age of animal and adoptability, etc.
We have a standard adoption contract.
Requirements: NO DECLAW, inside only unless accompanied by an adult, spay/neuter/rabies vaccine by 6 months of age if adopted out under 3 months of age; return to us at ANY time for any reason, do not pass on to others or take to animal control!

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
